I'll be receiving a beautiful 3" female Megaphobema mesomelas tomorrow... this is my dream species. I will DEF. make sure and post some pictures for everyone as soon as I see her. Wow, I don't think I've been this excited about waiting for a new T ever. Well except when the huge shipment of "blues" came in, which was 4 weeks ago, and was my last order... hmm.... oh well. I'M EXCITED. Anyways, my Q is this: I know the ideal care for this species, I don't have a problem with that. My only concern is keeping this girl at the right temperature. I live in Oklahoma, you know what that means. The summers get VERY hot, the winters get VERY cold. This species is best kept with temps that range from 65-75 at the most. My spider room (my room) is around 73-77? sometimes reaching the low 80's in the summer days to come. What should I do? How can I prevent this heat getting to her? Or is this something I should not worry about. Please feel free to sxpand with your thoughts on this. Like I said, this is a tarantula I have wanted since I started in the hobby, t'would be a shame to lose it.
